PORTLAND -- A teenage boy was shot in Northeast Portland Friday night, police said.

Around 8 pm Friday night, officers responded to reports of shots fired near NE 22nd Avenue and NE Mason Street, according to Portland Police Bureau Sgt. Pete Simpson.

Police at the scene found the teen with a non-life threatening gunshot wound. It’s believed the shots were fired from a vehicle that sped away.

A little more than an hour later, police got a second shots fired call at N Haight and N Mason. Officers found no victim there, but did locate bullet casings in the street. The two shooting scenes were less than three miles apart.

Simpson said witnesses to each shooting gave a similar description for the vehicle from which the shots may have been fired.

Portland’s Gang Enforcement Unit was investigating both shootings.
